    Adult Forum and Coffee Fellowship

    Sundays 9:40-10:30 AM September-May Enjoy speakers and lively discussion in the Fellowship Hall. Topics range from the churchs mission to missionary speakers, from presentations by college professors to discussion on the connection of Sunday to Monday. We also have some Sundays where we will discuss the Gospel text in small groups, as well as some Sundays just for coffee fellowship. Watch the monthly newsletter for the months schedule.

    Bible Study and Theology in Depth

    Wednesday 6:30-7:30 PM in Fellowship Hall Discover the power and depth of Gods Word for daily living. Explore what the text meant to the original hearers, and its current meaning for us. Pastor Sedlins leads these six to ten session Bible studies through the year, and usually invites the author of the study to lead the last session. These authors are often professors from Luther Seminary. The fall session begins the Wednesday following Rally Sunday in September. Contact: Pastor Sedlins

    Faith Circle

    2nd Tuesday of the Month 12:30 PM September-May Faith Circle meets in homes to share a time of conversation around a dessert provided by the hostess and to discuss needs that require attention. The main purpose is to unite in serious but spirited discussion based on the Bible study found in the monthly magazine Lutheran Woman Today. Each month we have an offering which is used for some form of outreach. The circles have decided to combine their offerings this year in order to purchase additional materials for quilting and to pay the scholarship for Neshumata Paulo, a student at the Maasai Girls Lutheran Secondary School in Tanzania. We welcome all women to join us in study and mission. Contact person: Grace Tauring
